After retiring Dale took up the painting of western outdoor scenery, and his work was quite good in my opinion. To my surprise he sent me a painting of the East Fork of the Jemez River covered in snow. This is located just above Los Alamos in the Valles Caldera NP. Dale knew that mountain stream was where I first learned to fly fish. I frequently said that CFD development of all-new technology is one-half science and one-half artistry. Dale knew how to do both.
